Monday 16th March
As from Friday 13th March, the guidance to schools on managing the spread of coronavirus has changed.
People with symptoms are no longer asked to call NHS 111, but rather to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online.
Anyone with a 'new, continuous' cough or high temperature has been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. Should any of our scholars in your care develop any of the symptoms detailed above, please inform us via the absence line on 0115 942 1300 for the Gregory Boulevard site (Y8, 9 and 10) and on 0115 942 4422 for the Sherwood Rise site (Y7 and 11).
There are no planned changes to timetables or school opening. We will continue to open as usual and to take specific Public Health England advice on a daily basis. We have no planned overseas travel, but we have cancelled other non-essential school trips within the UK until further notice.
Information regarding our COVID-19 contingency planning is available here.
